Stitched with Love


I printed 3 Gerda Steiner Love You Sew Much, Bunny onto white card stock, one for the base, one for the heart and hands and the last for just the hands (paws). I pierced the sewing marks on the heart and sewed over the printed stitches with some white thread.  Each layer is fuzzy cut and glued over the last. I die cut 4 Neat & Tangled Triangle Pattern Builders Dies out of pink gingham dp for my quilt square.  I adhered them onto a white square of thin card stock. I cut apart the Neat & Tangled sentiment from the Elfs and Their Shelf and used just the LOVE YOU.

I printed another Bunny onto kraft card stock and colored with Copics.  I used the same LOVE YOU sentiment and heart from Neat & Tangled. It is cut with a tag die from Mama Elephant.

For the Gift Bag I stamped the Neat & Tangled LOVE YOU sentiment with a Memento Rose Bud Marker and the heart with Memento black and they are colored with Copic Markers.The  polka dots were made using the same Copic Markers.

I come Bearing Gifts


I was so excited to buy the Beary Merry set from Neat & Tangled during the Black Friday Sales. I was happy to finally get a couple of extra sets to play with during the challenges.

I created a little gift box for my bear to hold. It is perfect for a candy kiss or other little trinket. I stamped, colored and fuzzy cut my bear. I stamped another one for the back and colored only the part you see through his arms. I stamped a third bear for just his belly that the arms were masked off of.

Christmas Organizer Day 4

I followed Mindy's tutorial for the organizer. 

I created my own receipt pouch for the inside using some snowflake dp, buttons, and a piece of wired thread.



The top front flap was folded inward so there isn't a cut edge and the flap top was trimmed using a corner punch. I added the buttons with foam dots.
I created a couple of list panels using my Printmaster program and adhered them to the inside.
The bottom squares are pockets which are perfect for tags.

Gift Bag Topper Day 3

I created my Gift Bag Topper following Tosh's tutorial.

I made my topper smaller to fit my gift bag. I measured the bottom of my gift bag and cut a piece of card stock 2 inches bigger on both sides. 

I scored my card stock 1 inch on each side and used a border punch on each side as well.  I cut my flaps and trimmed them so they were shorter than the sides when folded. I cropped part of the Candy Cane image to use for the top and adhered it on the top before gluing the topper together. The sentiment is computer generated.

I used a white gel pen to create dots in each of my scallops. I measured the width of my handles and cut slits into the topper on each side using my kraft knife.


Stamps: Power Poppy Candy Cane Classic
Supplies: Papertrey Ink red and Neenah white card stock, Copic Markers: R22, 24, 27, 29, 59,  G40, 43, 46, E50, White gel pen, Kraft Knife, Stampin Up Scallop border punch, Scoreboard, gift bag.
